Handprints For Mom
First, this is a simple heart with baby’s first handprint and planted in a pot. So cute for a first Mother’s Day.

Bejeweled poem for mom. The toddlers enjoyed glueing all the jewels on the card for their Mom.
Old School Ideas
These ideas are tried and true old school Mothers Day cards and gifts.
Originally the poem was mimeographed and glued inside the tea pot with a tea bag stapled inside. This little tea pot is very fragile some 30 years after it was made! Cut these out so that the handle is the fold. Have your kiddos decorate the front. You’ll have to add the poem and a tea bag.
Flower Basket for Mothers Day
You’ll need Have lots of flowers cut from magazines, seed packets, or seed catalogs. You’ll also need a plastic strawberry quart container. The one we used has a grid almost. Like this… Quart basket .
You’ll also need brown paint and a paper plate or small tray used for the paint. Glue sticks or glue bottles will also be needed.
Begin by having the child dip the strawberry basket into the brown paint and the print it onto the basket cut out. Have the children do this several times to give the effect of a woven basket.
Next have the kids glue on flowers of their choice, keeping the handle free of any flowers.
Finish with a little bow on the handle. (Not shown)
Now let it dry and sign the back with a Mother’s Day message.
